Real Madrid just published their starting XI for the upcoming Champions League match against Bayern Munich (Allianz Arena, 20:45 CET).
Bayern Munich starting XI: (To Be Confirmed) Neuer; Lahm, Javi Martínez, Boateng, Alaba; Vidal, Alonso, Thiago; Robben, Ribery, Muller.
Real Madrid starting XI: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modrić; Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.
As initially expected, Zidane has decided to start Casemiro, Kroos and Modric in the midfield. Los Blancos will surely try to control the tempo of the game, although it will not be easy to do so against Xabi Alonso, Tiago and Arturo Vidal.
Nacho and Ramos will have to perform well if Madrid want to have a chance in this tie and the same can be said about Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican goalkeeper played well last Saturday and he will need to keep that momentum going against Bayern's attackers.
Away goals are extremely important in the Champions League, so expect Madrid trying to score.
